Take an inclusive approach to grow business
New research is indicating the market for inclusive bathrooms and kitchens has grown by 20% in four years, and is now worth over £180million(*).
It is a sector that will continue to grow, with increasing numbers of people with mobility issues.
Closomat, Britain’s brand leader in assistive toilet technology , is at the forefront of aesthetic solutions. It has already developed more contemporary styling for the biggest selling range of shower (wash and dry) toilets- Vita- and launched a new wall-hung shower WC- Asana.
“Shower/ wash dry toilets are particularly singled out in the report as a technology that adds value to the adapted living sector,” says Robin Tuffley, Closomat marketing manager. “They offer a more practical, and increasingly, aesthetic solution, that enables the home to be ‘future proofed’, particularly in the increasing number of multi-generational households. Thus they potentially open a new market to the bathroom sector.
“And, uniquely with the brand leader, the Palma Vita, the toilet itself can be fitted with accessories to evolve and accommodate user needs as they change with time. That flexibility is a USP, and an add-on sales opportunity too- now and in the future. No other shower toilet offers that.”
To help distributors and retailer capitalise on the sector, Closomat offers one of the most comprehensive support packages available. It can provide design advice that is fully compliant with all Regulations, supply, install, commission, and deliver post installation service and maintenance. No other manufacturer in the sector can offer such a comprehensive service, in house.
Closomat’s range of automatic WCs encompasses floor mounted, wall hung and height adjustable variants. The shower toilets are complimented by contemporary fixed or height adjustable washbasins, shower seats, plus body driers, toilet lifters, ceiling track hoists, and adult sized height adjustable changing benches. Thus, a comprehensive inclusive bathroom package can be supplied, fitted, commissioned and maintained from one source, sold ‘off page’ without stockholding commitment. In addition, Closomat has a raft of useful reference sources on its website www.clos-o-mat.com; these include CAD blocks, white papers, NBS technical specifications.
